ALGHABRA PARFUMS is a tribute to the Old City of Damascus, ‘The City of Jasmine’ and a tribute to the perfumer MOHAMMED KHAIR ALGHABRA, one of the first “Attars” of the Middle East region.
Few world landmarks represent quite the smorgasbord of olfactory delights as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. With over 4,000 shops across more than 60 covered streets, it’s a veritable cornucopia of fragrant treasures, from spice and tea markets to exotic fruits to exquisite leather and woodwork.
Labyrinth Of Spices, as you might expect, is a sweeping journey through this iconic and bustling marketplace and its many aromas- a treasure chest of sweets, spices, woods, and more- but for anyone who appreciates the sophistication of a gentler touch, we’re pleased to report that the experience is as smooth and luxurious as a palanquin ride. Cardamom-infused coffee, sweet clove, and fiery nutmeg anchor the rich bouquet of spices, while green galbanum and sharp lavender inject a bright, fresh balance.
Ultimately, a wave of smooth, gently musky woods brings everything together in a soothing, surprisingly cohesive scent that feels like a representation of the Grand Bazaar as a whole. In other words, explore this Labyrinth to your heart’s content- we promise you’ll find your way to the other side.
